A COMEBACK RESUMES

A COMEBACK RESUMES

Posted By on Mon, Sep 24, 2001 at 4:00 AM

NASHVILLE -- The national tragedy which began happening on the morning of Tuesday, September 11th put a temporary end to the political resurfacing of former Vice President Al Gore, which had been proceeding apace right up until that time. Since then, Gore had relapsed into the virtual silence which had governed his actions after the turbulent Florida vote recount and his concession to Republican George W. Bush in early December. Gore returned to public consciousness in Nashville Saturday, making apperances at several meetings during a weekend of state Democratic Party events. Still bearded, he told his fellow Tennessee Democrats that he backed the president unresevervedly and urged that they do the same. Bush had put a call in to Gore in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11th, but, in the swirl of events, the two never made their connection. Gore dismissed that fact as unimportant, treating the president's call as a political courtesy.
